Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program
The Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) is an exciting new initiative designed to reduce the number of youth experiencing homelessness.
FY 2017 YHDP Funding Awards
On July 13, 2018, HUD announced $43 million in funding to 11 communities to ending youth homelessness. The communities that submitted applications took an important step in preventing and ending youth homelessness. HUD congratulates the 11 selected communities, commends all communities who applied, and is committed to supporting them, regardless of whether they were selected.
Resources related to the FY 2017 competition are available on the FY 2017 YHDP Application Resources page. Weren't selected? Didn't submit an application? Selected and want to hit the ground running? Resources are available on the Resources for Homeless Youth Service Providers page.
Everything your community needs to develop, implement, evaluate, and continuously improve a coordinated community response to prevent and end youth homelessness. This page includes the Ending Youth Homelessness Guidebook Series and the YHDP Listening Sessions.
As selected YHDP Communities are creating and implementing their Coordinated Community Plans, there are many lessons learned and resources developed that are helpful to all communities as they work on preventing and ending homelessness among youth.
